Sunday was Worlds of Fun:

...After he concludes his theme park tour, he will start making plans for his next big accomplishment: walking across the Grand Canyon on a high wire.The event will be televised and will be held in memory of his grandfather, who fell to his death during a high-wire performance in 1978.

I just looked at the park's e-mail about the walk... it appears that it will be about the same set-up as last time, from the tower to the entrance. I was hoping for something a little different...but on the other hand since I am going to KIC Day the following week I now won't have to drive back and forth 2 weekends straight.

Well it did say over 200 ft compared to the nearly 60ft Rick did.

Yes...I read over that little "fact"...but on the other hand, the park back then hyped that the height was 112 feet high for Rick's walk, not 60...so what will the 262 foot height REALLY be?
